I suggest you read “The Invisible Organization – How Informal Networks can Lead Organizational Change” by Neil Famer. He propose that rather than using a complete data collection methodology an iterative interview approach should be used. This process begins by interviewing known change champions. They are asked who the change positive and open-minded influencers in the organisation are. These individuals are then interviewed, with the process being repeated until no new names emerge. The idea is to, quickly and accurately, identify change-positive, as opposed to change-negative, influencers with extensive local personal networks. The resultant networks are then mapped and key players identified. These people are then used to weave the network and create a high-performance workplace with deep leadership.
Of course if this is not your intent then the method as described will require modification.

Can I ask why you are producing these analyses? What is the output expected to be & what are you then going to do with them?
If it's to illustrate issues in the network then some kind of sampling approach might might. If it's to identify specific people then you may need to survey all 2000.
